We were a small group of six visiting in early November 2012. From the moment we were picked up by Jakes in his Safari Landrover at the airport, we experienced first rate service. The food and accomodations were fantastic. The condition of the bush and health of the animals and the quantity of wildlife we saw was out of this world. One day we saw 13 lions,another day we counted 16 elephants. The trees, birds and insects were just as amazing. Our guide was very knowledgable and shared stories at every turn in the road. It is very nice to see people working at jobs they are passionate about. I took over 1000 pictures during our 4 days and have stories for a lifetime...like don't stand up in a jeep when taking a picture of the lion king.This is a MUST do trip of a lifetime.
